<atw>So I tried to verify the x86_64 GuixSD image and it said "by expired key 090B11993D9AEBB5 Ludovic Courtès <firstname.lastname@example.org>". also, it appears that pgp.mit.edu is down. Could someone tell me what the sha256 of the image is supposed to be? Thanks!
<atw>(messed up the copy-paste. the message was "Signature made by expired key 090B11993D9AEBB5 Ludovic Courtès <email@example.com>")
<Gamayun>Maybe try refreshing the key form a different server. I've just done it here..
<atw>I have to run now but I will try that when I next get the opportunity
<georges-duperon>Not sure how that config file would apply in my case, though, so for now doing cp -rL ~/.guix-profile/share/fonts/truetype ~/.guix-fonts && xset +fp ~/.guix-fonts each time I install a new font will do the trick.
<shiranaihito>oh ok.. it seems i'm not supposed to "sudo su" and do stuff
<shiranaihito>was there a "fix" planned for the postgresql data directory setting? i mean, if the data dir doesn't exist before applying the system config and rebooting, now i get errors until psql is disabled
<shiranaihito>i think i forgot to set the root password (or i'm not allowed to "su" into root), but now i'm not sure how to fix it if "sudo su" results in commands not being available
<amz3>yet another guix install (on top of ubuntu for the time being...)
<ancdel>I'm trying to install guixsd from a usb device. I have verified the integrity of the downloaded image, and used unetbootin to install the image to the usb stick. However, when booting from the usb, all I get is "Boot error" (no additional info/content onscreen, pressing any key just repeats this message).
<mlin>Hi everyone, I'm installing i3-gaps, and for the `configure` script, it requires --prefix and --sysconfdir flags. What I put as these, given that on many other distros they are `/usr` and `/etc`?
<ancdel>amz3: there is the text, "GRUB" and nothing else on screen. There are no menu entries. Nothing happens further. The bios is whatever shipped with this thinkpad t470, it's not librebooted yet. I can't find more information about the specifics, though.
<amz3>ancdel: otherwise said, if you already have a GNU/Linux OS on the t470, you can install guixsd going through guix binary install
<ancdel>amz3: I have used this usb keys multiple times with no problems, be it ubuntu, debian, systemrescuecd or anything else I've tried I haven't had problems before. I didn't know about the guix binary install, this seems like a good way to go.
<amz3>because that's how it works with 'guix package -f package-recipe.scm'
<amz3>then you can run 'guix package -f package-name.scm' and it will install the package specified in package-recipe.scm if the last expression of the .scm evalutes to a package definition, that's why you must add the name of the package at the end of the file
<amz3>you can do otherwise but it's more complicated
<shiranaihito>applying a system config has gotten ridiculously slow, seemingly because of limited bandwith
<shiranaihito>is there some kind of limit per IP address per day or something?
<shiranaihito>.. and how could i host a "proxy" or "cache" to avoid using "too much" of gnu.org's bandwith?
<shiranaihito>(i think i'd do that anyway, once i'm running a "serious environment" :P)
<amz3>shiranaihito: did you guix pull recently? sometime updates are slow because there is no more binary package on hydra
<OriansJ>shiranaihito: you could always host your own build server on your own network
<ancdel>I tried the binary install and I'm stuck on the verifying guix works step: guix package -i hello gives "guile: warning: failed to install locale" "warning: failed to install locale: invalid argument", as per the manual trying guix package -i glibc-locales does the same, and this never goes furhter
<ancdel>daemon says: "accepted connection from pid XXXX, user root" and nothing further
<shiranaihito>how do i list all users in the system? it seems there's a separate user for postgresql, but the system config application didn't set up the data dir's ownership etc.. it could handle the whole thing based on the config setting ofc
<efraim>Mesa on core-updates just keeps on getting updates
<shiranaihito>OriansJ ok, cool :). but what does "caching" mean then? it sounds like without caching turned on, the "published" substitute server would just fetch packages from gnu.org and pass them on to the machine that's using it as a substitute server
<ng0>sneek: later tell Apteryx: I'm working together with someone on the Docker package. We decided that I'll mentor him on the Guix package creation, very little dependencies are missing and he's done the building and packaging of Docker on another OS before.

<joshuaBPMan>It would probably be easier to just install guixSD instead of trying to convert a running system to guixSD...
<efraim>I had to do it also, couldn't get GuixSD to install on btrfs
<efraim>I think most people run `guix system reconfigure os-config.scm', but `guix system init ...' as mentioned in the manual should also work
<ancdel>joshuaBPMan that's what I tried but the dd method resulted in a black screen with the text GRUB and nothing else (i.e. no menu entries, keys do nothing), while trying with unetbootin resulted in the text "Boot error" with no further information, using keys just repeated the message.
<ancdel>I'll figure out how to write a config and try `reconfigure`
<efraim>For testing configs I normally run 'guix system build os-config.scm' first
